28 Aug Skylar & Jamil’s Super Chic Elopement
Skylar a project manager and Jamil a district manager in Orlando, Florida met through mutual friends and instantly hit it off. Since April of this year, they had been talking about getting married and started creating their guest list. However, after looking at rings and all of the other wedding expenses, they were taken back by the overall cost of a wedding. For them, choosing an elopement made things less stressful and so much cheaper. They decided against having bridesmaids or groomsmen, but instead asked all the ladies to wear shades of pinks and mauves. Their intimate wedding was super chic and fun! Check out their love story:
Jamil, when and how did you propose?
In the bathroom while she was getting ready in the morning, two weeks before our big day. She had no idea what I was doing. We had family coming for the 4th of July holiday and this was the perfect chance to have everyone together at once.
When and where was the big day?
The wedding was on July 2, 2015 at Country Chapel at Gotha, Florida. We opted for a banquet hall at Maggianos Little Italy for our reception.
What was your favorite part of planning?
Not having to do it for more time than we did!
What was your least favorite part of planning?
Making sure everyone could make it so quickly! We ended up having a total of 25 guests.
What advice do you have for couple’s that are planning their wedding?
Keep it simple! Make sure you are happy and remember that there only two people who matter on your big day
